Visit the Visit programme website for more information

Overview

The MA in  Psychology - Applied Psychology (Positive and Coaching Psychology) course at University College Cork provides you with the tools and skills to provide such support and you will gain theoretical and practical knowledge of Positive Psychology & Coaching competencies.

Positive Psychology is the science of well-being, strengths, and the achievement of our potential, and all that is good in us. As a person’s level of well-being increases, their goal attainment also increases. Consequently, the synergies between Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology make for a very powerful approach in helping people realise their potential.

Skills and Careers Information

Coaching Psychology is a developing profession within the wider field of Psychology. In the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI), it is considered a Special Interest Group. This is a step on the way to becoming a full Division, where practitioners will be able to term themselves Chartered Coaching Psychologists. 

The British Psychological Society (BPS) has established a Division of Coaching Psychology, so this programme is truly for the trailblazers – some of you might shape this profession in years to come.

Of course, you do not need to be a psychologist to be a great coach. If you decide not to follow the PSI route you would most likely want to join one of the coaching professional bodies and start following their accreditation routes such as the Association for Coaching, European Mentoring and Coaching Council or the International Coach Federation.
